A celebration of friendship, a Galentine party, with sips and sweets can bring together the special ladies in your life for an evening of fun.
I never need an excuse to get together with my girlfriends. The trend of throwing a Galentine party is an easy way to gather in my home for a fun night. Thanks so much to my sweet friend Chloe Celebrate and Decorate for organizing this hop! I’m so excited to be joining this group of talented tablescapers!

I decided it would be fun to get together for a little Sips + Sweets Whiskey Tasting party for Valentine’s with my girlfriends. And of course we would sip the Whiskey from my vintage teacup collection while enjoying delicious cake!
One of my favorite parts of entertaining is setting the table. I love choosing what should be the centerpiece, which dishes, what glasses, silverware and serving pieces to use. Selecting the menu is also an exciting part.

The first thing I decided I wanted to use was this yellow, red and black plaid blanket as a tablecloth. Then I decided to use my gingham metal picnic basket in the center and filled one side of it with faux pink flowers. My red striped napkins and my wedding registry china, Mikaska’s Italian Countryside, were pulled in too. I found the red handled silverware at the Duluth Junk Hunt this year.
I found my “She’s Whiskey in a Teacup” sign (link below) on a trip to Nashville a few years ago. I loved it instantly because I collect vintage teacups and I’m a whiskey drinker. A year or so later Reece Witherspoon came out with her book by the same name.
I thought it would be fun to do a whiskey tasting. So I chose three different whiskeys and put them in numbered brown bags. Then everyone can vote on their favorites and be surprised. I recommend choosing a popular brand, a local brand to your town or region, and then one you choose just because you like the label.
My needlepoint napkins were my grandmother’s and were passed down to me. It’s so special not only to have something that was hers, but that she handmade.
My vintage teacups were passed down from my other grandmother. I cherish them!
The cake I picked up from the grocery store bakery. I wanted something pink.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will become a regular if you aren’t already! Let me know in the comments below what your favorite thing would be to sip out of vintage tea cups! If you are following the tour in order you are off to Life and Linda next.
